Abstract: Mattia Preti was born in 1613 in Taverna in Calabria, Italy. He worked in Rome and Naples as a painter, and in 1658 he visited Malta where he painted important works for the Knights of the Order of St John. Preti became a Knight of Magistral Grace within the Order of St John under Grandmaster Nicholas Cotoner. He continued to paint and received many ecclesiastical and private commissions for his work in Malta, until his death in 1699. The 4th centenary of the birth of this accomplished 17th century artist was marked in Malta in 2013 by an international exhibition, publications, lectures and other initiatives.
